The Warm Heart of Africa
‘The fool wanders, a wise man travels.’
You’ll find ‘charm’ in Malawi – staying in the old colonial forest lodges and tea estates of the Shire Valley, you can’t help but enjoy the peaceful nature this country exudes. There is an abundance of unique destinations, where you can appreciate unique flora and fauna; such as the Roan Antelope of the Nyika National Park, the Mulanje Cedar of the Mulanje Biosphere Reserve that locals carve with the most elaborate of designs. Nyika plateau has a bloom of orchids, second to none, during January and February each year, you can see over 200 specimens in flower.
Lake Malawi is a haven of warmth, color and life – from the fishing villages to the colorful cichlid fish found while snorkeling in this lake, here there is something for everyone to enjoy. Those wanting a big game safari in the past, were best to combine Malawi with Zambia, by ending in South Luangwa National Park. Today, however, this is really changing as with the huge support of African Parks Foundation, who have invested a lot of time and energy in bringing back the iconic Big 5, as well as many other species, Malawi is now a very complete destination. So while planning you’re adventure we will consider Malawi’s parks; Liwonde, Majete, Mangochi & Nkhotakota.
The people of Malawi are one of the greatest assets of this country, indeed the very reason behind why Malawi became the warm heart of Africa. We look forward to sharing our enthusiasm for this most warm of destinations.
